Lack Support but Encourages Independence

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Overall there is a lack of support from administration - however, the benefit of that is you aren't micromanaged in this position and do have the freedom and flexibility to lead groups in the way you want and have some breathing room for prep/planning. There is a lot of burnout, however, and it's clear that expressive therapists are considered the least important department here.

Certified Pharmacy Technician

Good place to work for, Amazing staff and coworkers. Training for the pharmacy was a little freehanded, no real "proper" training. Management didn't give any of the proper forms, and policy that would've been a great aid in future settings. 10 hour shifts, in a level 2 trauma er, so it is very busy and you will hear stroke notifications quite often.

Great staff/coworkers, will burn you out or churn you out

The staff is wonderful. If you work hard and know how to do your job you will have opportunities to move around - this is mainly because everyone leaves because of how low paying and how much you are taken advantage of. Always taking extra patients, always doing more work outside of your role, etc, etc, etc.


Great staff


worst pay (true for most of HCA) in the state, short staffed always, high turn over

Great management and pay

Float Pool manager is phenomenal. Supports his staff and lots of freedom with self-schedule. Pay is also decent for float pool. Some floors are short staffed and there's been lots of staff turnover. But being in float pool, its manageable since you're not stuck on one floor and management is great with switching your unit if you ask house supervisor to not put you back on a floor 2 nights in a row.

Its fine if youre part of the club

The pay is laughably low for PTA's. At least they dont sweat you too hard about productivity. Everything is fine if you are part of the liberal crew and dont question anything. The second youre deemed not a part of the drones you get your filed papered with garbage and drummed out.

Staffing issue

There are a lot of travel nurses because there’s not enough nurses on the floor. Charge nurse takes 6 patients most of the time or charges for other units as well.

Great place to work

Excellent teamwork and very supportive management. They are very helpful and encouraging to RNs who want to get their BSN. They provide a generous tuition reimbursement and scholarship program.

Lack of resources

The Medical Center of Aurora is not an ideal place for clinical therapies, acute psychiatric services are limited to group work and there are limited resources and supervision support for services. Promising group of therapists faced with an unfortunate amount of systemic obstacles.

Great place

Very accommodating and welcoming place to work. Working here as a mom, they were very flexible with my schedule and also gave generous maternity leave and I was able to feel confident that I would have a job upon returning. management was easy to talk to and bring concerns up with.

Good place to learn

Many opportunities for extra shifts. There are several educational programs that the company pays for. The patient load is heavy and the pay is not great but it is competitive.

Great people with which to work

Many nurses are very caring and fun, great professionals. There is a culture of helping each other. We move and position patients together. There are many in services and demonstrations . Charting for patients can be in their rooms.

Short staffed under paid over worked

If you want to get run to the ground and always work short staffed no matter how much you ask for help this would be your place. Toxic environment and it just spreads there is no support.

Not much teamwork

Management listens but doesn't do much to make work environment better. Short staffed majority of times. Not much teamwork. You are fortunate if you get both a break and a lunch.


Hard working coworkers


Short staffed

Helping those that are in need of health insurance

This facility does not care about staff that are on the frontline at all. Managers , are normally working from home, and bark orders out to screen patients whom are positive for COVID , not thinking of how this will effect staff or family. I would never recommend anyone to work for this hospital as you will be expendible.




No pay for any holiday time & you must use your PTO time that you have accumlated.

Excellent place to get nursing experience

TMCA like any workplace has its flaws but this is the best place to get experience in whatever nursing specialty you'd like. Landing a job here gets your foot in the door to ICU, OR, IR, Cath Lab, or ER. The hospital is understaffed but that's the case at every hospital in the Denver metro area. They really need to work on hiring more staff and retaining current staff.


Education, job mobility, great coworkers, Good pay if in float pool


Understaffed, Pay outside of float pool is low for the market

Great team

This is a supportive team environment with lots of opportunities to grow and advance. Working in behavioral health is challenging but rewarding! Of you are passionate about behavioral health, this is the place for you!




Challenging patient population
